City of Greater Bendigo Director of Community Wellbeing Vicky Mason said Funloong Day is a not to be missed free event for families.

“It’s a highlight of the City’s children’s events calendar and we expect to see a great turnout again this year,” Ms Mason said.

“The City is committed to providing a range of free, family friendly events throughout the year, and FunLoong Fun Day is a great example of this.”

The FunLoong Day 2018 program features a huge range of fun entertainment and activities between 11am and 2pm.
